The Office for Diversity and Inclusion upholds the mission by providing:

  • Advocacy for underrepresented undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff.
  • Support for academic, personal, career, and financial related matters through individual or group meetings.
  • A welcoming and safe atmosphere for dialogues, networking and community building.
  • Guidance and referrals to resources within the college, the university, and local community.
  • Relevant information on engaged scholarship opportunities, leadership development and scholarship exploration.
  • Enrichment workshops on diverse topics that foster educational, professional, and cultural growth.
  • A variety of programming that further the understanding of diversity, equity and inclusion.
  • Support and expansion of efforts within the college that celebrate diversity, culture and heritage.
  • Leadership to the College on initiatives for recruitment  and retention of underrepresented graduate and undergraduate students, faculty and staff.
  • Consultation and resources for administration, faculty and staff. 
  • Collaboration oppotunities with external stakeholders. 
Moving away from all family and friends, even as a graduate student, is a challenge. HHD's Office for Diversity and Inclusion has been a safe haven and place of growth and replenishing for me as often or as little as I've needed it.
